Christa and Rob are without a doubt one of my favorite couples. They are joyful, silly, fun, and madly in love with each other. Their cuteness is overwhelming and their love for each other makes my heart so happy! Their engagement session last Fall was absolutely stunning. We started at the VA State Capitol with soft colors and formal outfits. Then we made our way to Belle Isle while they changed into the most perfect Fall outfits! The shoot was complete with golden sunshine over the river and a colorful sunset while walking over the bridge. It was a beautiful evening for two beautiful souls. I can’t wait to share their recent wedding pictures based in Richmond with a church ceremony and Monument Avenue portraits!
One of my favorite locations for an engagement session is Brown’s Island because it gives you the fresh blooms in Spring, the water, all the different bridges, a beautiful field, river rocks over looking the sunset, and more! I knew this would be the perfect spot for MacKenzie and Derrik since they were coming from out of town to take their engagement pictures. Turns out it was just in time for those pretty cherry blossoms, too!
This was my first time meeting MacKenzie and Derrik in person and we instantly connected. We had SO much fun walking around and getting to know each other better. They’re one of those couples you could just talk to for over an hour and then realize you haven’t even picked up your camera yet. MacKenzie is so sweet and I love the way Derrik makes her laugh. But you’ll also notice the way he looks at her in the pictures below and it’ll just make your heart melt! After spending just a few moments together, I knew they were adorably crazy about each other. They can be silly and laugh at each other, but they also nail the whole romantic gazing in each others eyes look. I love that MacKenzie wanted to be “more them” and chose a casual outfit with her favorite type of shoes- flip flops! All I can really wish for in an engagement session is for the couple to be completely themselves in every way and I think these pictures totally bring that out.
After leaving this shoot, I felt even more excited for their wedding day coming up in June at The Barns of Kanak! I can sense that it’s going to be a crazy fun wedding and we’re going to get some crazy good pictures! 🙂
Warning, you are about to see some SERIOUSLY stunning engagement pictures of these two! Maggie and Zack are too cute, so much fun, and of course, madly in love! I can’t wait for their wedding in October! This session couldn’t have been any more perfect… warm weather, sunshine, a major golden glow, and a beautiful sunset overlooking the city! Just wait until you see the shots on the river rocks and in the dreamy field, OH, and their outfit change, the silhouettes… okay maybe just ALL OF IT!

Here comes the outfit change, some major glow, and a beautiful sunset! OBSESSED.
I had to catch that sunset over the city- what better way than getting some silhouette shots?! Not my typical style, but fun to try something new! Love these!
